I need to embed a map from DHIS2 onto a web page. Dissecting the example @ https://play.dhis2.org/dem. I get to the map from its API link https://play.dhis2.org/demo/api/26/maps/ytkZY3ChM6J/data. But when I try the same in the local instance I get;

{"httpStatus":"Internal Server Error","httpStatusCode":500,"status":"ERROR","message":"holes must not contain null elements"}

Below is the stack trace from tomcat7-stderr.log. I would be grateful if someone can give a pointer to what I am doing wrong.

This indicates that there is a problem with the coordinates representing a polygon associated with an organisation unit in your map. As the message indicates, there is a problem with the representation of a hole in the polygon.

To inspect your coordinate information you can export it in the raw DHIS 2 format:

/api/organisationUnits.json?fields=id,name,coordinates&level2

or as GeoJSON:

/api/organisationUnits.geojson?level=2

and then use a validator to identify the organisation unit with the invalid coordinates.
